Meat on the street

We are much closer to our food here in Paris than in the states. Meaning we see veggies arriving to the neighborhood markets, see people buying fresh seafood, veggies and bread daily.
Also, as evidenced by the attached picture, we see sides of beef being delivered on neighborhood streets, sans protective plastic wrap or covering, I might add. You might see that down at the public market in Seattle, but not on, say, the Ave in the University district, which would be equivalent to the neighborhood where we saw this. New experiences abound.

Open air elevated station

This one is similar in concept to what the Seattle Monorail Project's open-air stations will look like. Except several decades newer of course.
